FYI/Happenings Citywide Conversation on Race / Social Justice

Mayor Michael B. Hancock, in partnership with Lighthouse Writers Workshop and NEA Big Read, announced DENVER TALKS, a citywide effort to bring the community together for safe discussions around race, justice and the award-winning book Citizen: An American Lyric by MacArthur Fellow, Claudia Rankine. “Now more than ever we need to tear down the barriers that divide us and build up the connections that unite us,” Mayor Hancock said. “Our goal is to build a more inclusive and accepting community, and to do that, we need the courage to confront the biases and behaviors that keep us apart.” Over the next six weeks, DENVER TALKS will distribute more than 1,200 free copies of Citizen: An American Lyric to metro-area residents as well as host a number of book discussions, arts events, guest talks and more. The effort will culminate in a visit from the author, who will join the Mayor in two free community conversations: • November 15, Boettcher Concert Hall, 6:30 p.m. • November 16, Metropolitan State University Tivoli Student Union/

Turnhalle, 12:30 p.m. Both events are free, but registration is required for the Nov. 15 event at the Boettcher Concert Hall. “Metropolitan State University of Denver is proud to partner with Mayor Hancock, the city of Denver and the other DENVER TALKS sponsors to have these crucial conversations on race relations and better prepare our youth to engage in constructive dialogue and action,” said MSU Denver president Dr. Janine Davidson. “As our Colorado communities become more diverse it will be up to our future generations to be even more creative in harnessing the positives that come from diversity and addressing the challenges that come with differing cultures, mindsets and access to limited resources.” Thanks to partners including MSU Denver, Denver Public Schools, The Denver Foundation, Denver Public Library and Denver County McDonald’s restaurants, there are many ways to participate in DENVER TALKS.The Denver Public Library has copies of Citizen: An American Lyric available, including e-books, audio books, and book club kits that include six books and a discussion guide. Free books will be available at the DENVER TALKS kickoff party from 2 to 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Clyfford Still Museum. For more information, visit www.denvertalks.org.

Marking the Mid-Point in 2007 Downtown Area Plan 10 years ago, the Downtown Denver Partnership and the City and County of Denver convened the community to develop the 2007 Downtown Area Plan as a bold vision to achieve a vibrant, economically healthy, growing and vital center city. Downtown Denver is thriving, yet our future still depends on the ability to attract growth and investment, maintain an inviting and active urban environment, and responsibly manage resources and infrastructure. With the 2007 Downtown Area Plan as our guide, an unparalleled bias for action, and vision focused firmly on building an economically powerful center city, we have seen incredible progress in our dedicated and sustained efforts to realize each of the Plan’s vision elements. We know our city is only as strong as the core, and our impact is at its peak when Downtown’s diverse community of stakeholders comes together to work toward a common goal. Join us on October 26th as we mark the mid-point of the 2007 Downtown Area Plan and review our successes, shine light on our challenges and work together to ensure we sustain strong momentum over the next 10 years. October 26, 2017, 7:00 – 9:30 a.m. Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center www.downtowndenver.com

City, RTD and Partners Share 16th Street Mall Design Concepts The City and County of Denver and the Regional Transportation District (RTD) shared proposed design concepts for improvements to the 16th Street Mall — including the alignment of the transit lanes and general location of the trees, lights, and gathering and pedestrian space — as part of a federal environmental process to design the Mall’s future. More design concepts may be evaluated based on public input. Project partners will identify a preferred alternative later this fall following further analysis and input from the public; this is one step in a broad effort to rethink and potentially redesign the 16th Street Mall — one of the city’s most vital connectors and important public spaces. The 35-year old Mall has aging infrastructure and rising maintenance costs, while seeing increasing numbers of transit users and pedestrians. This phase of Mall design is the first part of a federal process as outlined by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The NEPA effort is led by the city and RTD, in partnership with the Downtown Denver Partnership, the Downtown Denver Business Improvement District, the Denver Urban Renewal Authority (DURA) and the Federal Transit Admin■ Continued on page 4

FYI/Happenings ■ Continued from page 2 istration. The NEPA process is expected to wrap up in June 2018. Final design planning will continue after NEPA is complete, if the “No Build” option is not selected. • Median Asymmetrical – Reconstruct aging Mall infrastructure, with a similar alignment: a median between bus lanes, and some blocks where pedestrian areas are asymmetrical. • Center – Reconstruct Mall for buses to run directly down the center, with no median and with symmetrical pedestrian areas for the length of the Mall. • Center Asymmetrical – Reconstruct Mall for buses to run directly down the center on some blocks, with no median, and some blocks with asymmetrical pedestrian areas. • No Build -- No change to the Mall — only continued infrastructure maintenance. Input So Far Previous studies have helped Mall partners identify the need for longterm changes to the Mall’s infrastructure to enhance its role as a vibrant and active public space. The NEPA process began in June and has included stakeholder workshops, public open houses and feedback booths at Meet in the Street events. Public Input Opportunities Open Houses: You can learn more and provide feedback on the design concepts at a 16th Street Mall open house. You may also provide feedback on other aspects of the mall including trees, safety, urban design features, historic design and aesthetics. 16th Street Mall Open Houses October 18, 2017 Noon - 1 p.m. or 5 - 6 p.m. RTD, 1600 Blake Street, Denver View the alternatives, learn more and provide your feedback at www.denvergov.org/

Vision Zero Action Plan to Eliminate Traffic Deaths by 2030 The City and County of Denver has launched the Vision Zero Action Plan, aimed at eliminating traffic deaths and serious injuries through a specific set of tactical actions and increased crossdepartmental coordination. The city began laying the groundwork for its Vision Zero initiative in 2015, and during his 2017 State of the City address, Mayor Michael B. Hancock set a goal of eliminating all trafficrelated deaths and serious injuries on Denver’s roadways by 2030. “The loss of life in traffic accidents is a tragedy, but even more tragic is that every single one of those deaths is preventable,” Mayor Hancock said. “We’re aiming for zero traffic related deaths by 2030 because, frankly, no other goal is acceptable. Through this action plan, we will focus on protecting our transportation system’s most vulnerable users and call upon our partners and the public for their support in eliminating traffic deaths.” To develop the plan, Denver worked in coordination with the Denver Vision Zero Coalition, a group formed in 2016 by organizations including WalkDenver, BikeDenver, Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation and the Mayor’s pedestrian and bicycle advisory committees. “In 2016, 61 people died in crashes on Denver’s streets,” said Crissy Fanganello, Director of Transportation and

Mobility for Denver Public Works. “That is 61 too many. The Vision Zero Action Plan is a major step forward in prioritizing human lives on our city’s streets.” The Vision Zero Action Plan lays out 70 specific actions to save lives and create safer streets over the next five years. Vision Zero best practices include design elements like multimodal street standards, leading pedestrian intervals, slow zones, and median refuges. Recognizing the need to promote a culture of safety, The Denver Police Department will emphasize its focus on enforcement and education. “The Denver Police Department stands with our Vision Zero partners in eliminating traffic deaths and serious injuries in Denver,” said Denver Police Chief Robert White. “Denver residents and visitors deserve safe streets, and we are strongly committed to reducing these numbers.” For additional information and to learn how to get involved, visit Denver’s Vision Zero open meeting October 18, 2017 Noon - 1 p.m. or 5 - 6 p.m. RTD, 1600 Blake Street, Denver View the alternatives, learn more and provide your feedback at www.denvergov.org/

Wining & Dining Oceanaire Thinks Pink with Pink Ribbon Oysters

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Oceanaire Seafood Room will feature Pink Ribbon Oysters throughout October. A percentage of the oysters purchased by the Oceanaire will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Pink Ribbon Oysters are wild diver oysters, harvested from the frigid waters of the Long Island Sound. Oystermen navigate the North Shore of Long Island in search of these coveted delicacies. Once harvested from the dark bottom of the Atlantic by scuba divers, each oyster is meticulously cleaned and graded by hand by experts for the highest quality product. Naturally salty, petite and plump, Pink Ribbon Oysters do not have cracks in their shells, ensuring optimal, natural moisture. Diners will delight knowing that 25% of every Pink Ribbon Oyster purchase is donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a charity determined to find a cure for the disease that touches the lives of millions of Americans, by personal experience or association. “We are thrilled to offer guests decadent Pink Ribbon Oysters throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” said Wade Wiestling, Vice President of Culinary Development. “The combination of one-of-a-kind seafood and charitable giving was a natural fit for the Oceanaire.” The Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy the freshest seafood flown in daily from around the

world. The Oceanaire’s knowledgeable staff provides guests with exceptional service by guiding them through the wide variety of items on the menu and selecting the perfect wine to complement any meal.

Su Teatro proudly announces the 2017-2018 theatre season at Su Teatro Cultural & Performing Arts Center.

La Carpa is set in near future when speaking Spanish is restricted and learning about our history is banned. Our production will shine a light on why it’s important to resist dark agendas and embrace humanity.

Animal Matters October is Adopt-aOwl-O-Ween Celebration: Shelter Dog Month at DFL Meet Live Owls at the A month dedicated to increasing Raptor Program awareness of the millions of shelter

Woman Charters Airplane, Flies Over 300 Pets To Safety As disasters continue to strike in the Western Hemisphere, more and more heroes emerge, astounding us with their initiative and generous nature. Most recently, we’re charmed by hero Sali Gear and the shelter volunteers of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Sali Gear grew up in the U.S Virgin Islands, and is co-owner of Island Dog Rescue in St. Croix. The organization works with shelters in the tiny Islands to move pets to shelters on the mainland, where they are more likely to find homes. They, along with the rest of the Caribbean, have faced a rough September. They weathered not one, but two major hurricanes in just one month. Island Dog Rescue survived Hurricane Irma with minimal damage, and got right back to work despite facing numerous issues including lack of electricity and supplies, and communication problems. Instead of giving up, they tried harder than ever to get pets off the island and into homes as recovery efforts began in the Caribbean. Soon, though, news came in that another storm was approaching, and the Virgin Islands could expect a direct hit from a second powerful hurricane. Sali Gear and the volunteers with Island Dog Rescue wasted no time doing

what they could to save not only the pets in their care, but on all three islands. Together with donors, Sali managed to raise enough money to purchase crates and charter a plane to move over 300 pets off the islands of St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John – and out of harm’s way! Not only did they rescue pets in the care of shelters, but their organization reached out EVERYONE in the Virgin Islands, offering to fly their pets to safety on Sali’s farm in Virginia Beach for free! Volunteers worked tirelessly to organize crates, prepare pets for travel, and transport them to the plane.The charter plane landed in Virginia, and were received by volunteers at Calypso Run Farm in Virginia Beach. Hurricane Maria was perhaps more devastating than Irma, and completely destroyed the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center – which was empty, thanks to Sali Gear and the volunteers on the Virgin Islands! Hundreds of pets that might have lost their lives in the storm are safe. Island Dog Rescue is now asking followers to consider donating funds to help rebuild the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center, which offered free veterinary care to those in need after Hurricane Irma, but is no longer standing after Hurricane Maria. You can donate here: https://www.generosity.com/animalpet-fundraising/rebuild-the-st-croixanimal-welfare-center

The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program invites everyone to our celebration of owls: our very own Owl-O-Ween! It will be held on October 28th, 2017 at 720 E. Vine Drive in Fort Collins from 1-3pm. The event will feature fun activities including Trick or Treating (for young or old!), educational learning opportunities, and beautiful live owls on display. We will also be featuring a “Carrion Corner” with our marvelous Turkey Vulture, plus other amazing animals such as snakes and tarantulas. Come in costume to add to the fun! The event is free for the public, but all donations are welcomed and will go to the care and treatment of injured birds of prey. Join us for the Owl-O-Ween Halloween experience! www.rmrp.org

R e a l E state Many different economic and demographic factors impact the health of our real estate market. Interest rates, demand and supply, employment, population trends and affordability to mention a few. Over the past few years the above considerations have gradually improved and/or remained stable. Many economic forecasters agree that big recessions (i.e. 2008-2011) rarely take place. They recognize more traditional recessions occur for a mere 2-4 quarters, every 5-10 years and usually correspond to local and national job losses. We experience recessions when there are significant influences in the economic sector. Housing or office construction becomes “overbuilt”, or inflation increases too quickly. Current unemployment figures, both nationally (4.1%) and locally (2.4%) are viewed as quite healthy. A developing concern in the farreaching construction industry, is that we may soon be looking at a labor shortage resulting in higher skilled labor costs (particularly considering devastation to Florida, Houston and Puerto Rico) and increased time frames to complete public and private sector projects. Downtown Denver continues to be a vibrant urban city that is increasingly interesting and entertaining in a variety of venues. Per Denverinfill.com, downtown neighborhoods have added 93,000 residents, 10,000 new residential units (almost all higher end rentals) and over 5,000 more units are being developed; all since 2010. From 2010-2016, national employment growth eclipsed 11%, while Denver experienced 17% during the same period. Other interesting notes include that 60% of all Downtown residents use public transportation and the largest Whole Foods store is opening in the South Platte area to service this revitalized area. The Downtown condo market is poised for success as there is no lack of demand and the embattled construction defects law is no longer an issue. With many (drawing board) developments being built in the near future, let’s not also forget about the bevy of cranes building new high-quality office space downtown. Nationally and locally, the supply of homes for sale is clearly lower than the demand levels. The majority of current homeowners recognize it is a good time to sell, but are reluctant to make a decision. Many feel content where they live now (choosing

Real Estate Public Review of New Five-Year Housing Plan

Mayor Michael B. Hancock joined members of the Housing Advisory Committee to open a 45-day public review of Denver’s new five-year housing policy, strategy, and investment plan, Housing an Inclusive Denver. The new plan outlines strategies to create and preserve strong neighborhoods with diverse housing options that are accessible and affordable to all Denver residents. The plan is centered around four fundamental values: • Leveraging and enhancing housing investments to support inclusive communities; • Identifying ways to foster communities of opportunity – around good homes, good jobs, good schools and access to more transportation options and health services; • Looking at housing as a continuum that serves residents across incomes – from people experiencing homelessness to those living on fixed-incomes, and working families; • And embracing diversity throughout our neighborhoods to ensure that Denver remains a welcoming community for all residents. “Our new five-year housing plan celebrates the diversity of our neighborhoods and identifies ways we can deploy our resources to help keep Denver a vibrant and affordable city,” Mayor Hancock said. “It’s our job to bring opportunities to communities that lift people up, not push them out and this plan outlines strategies to make this a housing market that works for everyone.” Housing an Inclusive Denver was developed with input from more than 1,500 people, including many nonprofit and advocacy groups, who attended public meetings, responded to online surveys, and attended Housing Advisory Committee meetings. On Thursday, the Housing Advisory Committee, who worked extensively over the last several months on development of the plan, voted to recommend the plan for council review and a 45-day public comment period. The plan is available at www.denvergov.org/ housing where readers can access a video overview of the plan as well as a public feedback survey. The City delivered the plan to members of City Council today. A 45-day public comment period will run through November 13. “When we look at the current housing landscape in Denver,

there’s a huge demand for affordable housing across income levels, and the Housing Advisory Committee felt strongly that the plan needed to address the housing needs of people across that continuum,” Kevin Marchman, chair of Denver’s Housing Advisory Committee said. “We focused this plan around the people we hope to serve, from those experiencing homelessness to renters and home owners struggling to keep pace with the market to those buying their first home.” Erik Soliván, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Opportunities for People Everywhere (HOPE) said, “We look forward to working with all our partners, from neighborhoods, nonprofits, developers and service providers, to continue to preserve and expand affordability for people throughout Denver.” The plan and its accompanying annual action plans, are meant to be flexible, living documents that serve to guide the City’s investments, strategies and policies through future changes to Denver’s housing market. Following the 45-day comment period, the City will make final adjustments to the plan and submit it to City Council for final approval. A Spanish language version of the document is currently in development and will also be available for public review beginning October 9 through November 13. The annual action plan for 2018 will be released later this fall. www.denvergov.org/housing

RiNo Industrial Facility Acquired for $200 Million for Mixed Use Project Thorofare Capital has provided a joint venture led by Santa Monica, CA-based Mass Equities with $30.3 million in short-term bridge financing for the acquisition of a 157,210-square-foot industrial facility in Denver, CO. Thorofare’s financing consists of two, one-year, interest only crosscollateralized loans underwritten to 59% LTV. The financing is secured by adjacent 63,474 and 93,736-square foot warehouse buildings located at 2900 - 3060 Brighton Boulevard. The 7.8-acre site is located in Denver’s River North Arts District (RiNo), approximately one mile north of Downtown Denver. The buildings are fully occupied by a variety of users including Industry, specialty car dealer The Denver Collection, MPC Construction, and Builder’s Outlet. Mass Equities had been under contract since October 2016 to purchase the property from a group of local investors, when financing from a NY-based private lender fell

through less than one week from closing. Thorofare was able to fund the loans in four days from application to meet the hard close date, according to Andrew Sobel, founder and managing principal of Mass Equities. “Plain and simple; this loan would never have closed with any other lender in the country other than Thorofare,” said Sobel. “Thorofare saw our vision for the property and were immediately all-in. Their level of commitment, professionalism and unwavering focus was unlike anything I have seen in my 35+ years in the business.” The joint venture will immediately move forward with plans to re-develop the 65,000-square-foot warehouse building on the corner of Brighton Blvd and 31st Street, into cutting edge creative office space as the first phase of a planned $200 million, mixed-use redevelopment that will also include 480 market rate apartments and approximately 85,000 square feet of retail space. “The RiNo neighborhood is undergoing a significant transformation from an industrial corridor to a thriving artistic mixed use destination and is a hotspot for urban infill and adaptive re-use opportunities,” said Thorofare Principal and CIO Brendan Miller. “We were impressed with the strength of sponsorship, and its proven ability to get things done in the Denver market.”

Denver’s Strategy on Amazon HQ2 Bid When Colorado submits its bid this month for Amazon HQ2, the proposal will emphasize the region's highly educated workforce, quality of life and global connectivity through its international airport. Financial and tax incentives? Not so much. “We are not the biggest incentive state — and we won’t do anything differently for Amazon than we would for any other company that is looking to locate here,” J.J. Ament, president and CEO of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp., stated. Ament's agency is representing the region in preparing a bid for Amazon.com Inc.'s sprawling second headquarters campus. In September, the Seattlebased online retail giant (Nasdaq: AMZN) announced that it plans to invest more than $5 billion to build and operate the new headquarters and that up to 50,000 employees would work there. ( Full details here.) The open call launched cities into a full sprint to get their proposals together by the Oct. 19 deadline. Ament is convinced that metro

Denver, and the nine counties the EDC represents, will make it past the first round of applications by being competitive in quality workforce and quality of life. “We don’t have to lure them with financial incentives,” Ament said. “We are not going to be that [kind of] proposal.” As for possible Denver-area sites for the huge complex, a review committee with local and state eco devo leaders received more than 30 submissions of potential locations . "I believe we can replicate their experience in Seattle, in terms of talent, business environment they want to work in — friendly and predictable — and you can't ignore our lifestyle. There are some cities around the U.S. that compete with us on talent; some compete on good quality of life — but very few in U.S put it all together like we do." This process has been unusual. Typically, economic development deals are made in secret and announced when the contracts have been signed. Amazon’s open call to cities has created massive interest and speculation about which city will win the project. Ament does not mind a look behind the eco devo curtain. “The community gets to see a great example of how we come together as a region – each area has its own unique attributes, but we are speaking as one voice,” he said. Still, the committee is bound by non-disclosure agreements — meaning, Ament said, that he cannot reveal the top sites the committee identified or any more details about the state’s bid. “Our proposal is cutting edge and creative and regrettably confidential,” Ament said. But the local committee did say in September that sites to be offered likely be close to the airport. Last month, Stephanie Copeland, executive director for the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, told the Colorado Economic Development Commission that proximity to the airport will be a major factor, per guidance she's received from Amazon officials. That knocks out communities outside the metro area that have expressed interest in the project. Ament said the eight sites that will be highlighted in the proposal are from across the region, including Broomfield, Adams County, Denver County, Arapahoe, Boulder, Jefferson and Douglas counties.

Laurel Cherry Creek project

Laurel Cherry Creek Closing Out First Phase of Sales Sales efforts at Laurel Cherry Creek are outpacing construction, and as a result the development and sales team have decided to end the first phase of sales on November 30th, providing interested buyers with a limited time to purchase a residence at current pricing and still select their own finishes. The exclusive collection of high-rise condominiums will announce a second phase of sales first quarter of 2018. “The level of interest has not only been high for Laurel Cherry Creek, but so has the sales pace, which is the reason we’re going to suspend sales during the holidays and announce a re-release in 2018,” said Dawn Raymond of The Kentwood Company and the exclusive listing broker for Laurel Cherry Creek. “Interested buyers still have a few weeks to act, and finalize their purchase. Otherwise, we expect to see a new rush of interest and sales when we commence our sales efforts early next year.” Laurel Cherry Creek is located in the heart of Cherry Creek North, with a sales gallery at 215 Saint Paul Street. The development is highlighted by limited edition residences, immaculate interiors, panoramic views, an attended lobby and reception lounge, a rooftop retreat with a salt water pool & summer kitchen and personalized resident services. “We have designed and built Laurel Cherry Creek to be the preeminent residential address in Cherry Creek, where owners will enjoy upscale, maintenance free living in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the United States,” said Paul Powers, President, PAULS Corporation. More information regarding Laurel Cherry Creek is available at www.laurelcherrycreek.com
